lyrics

Who am I
to complain or protest if you just can't find the time
for me and my affections, my letters and boxes, my words and my rhymes.

I wish we could go back to when our love spilled out over the floor.
My amniotic bliss in your arms made me feel I needed nothing more

than your love surrounding me for the rest of my life.
My dependence on you would be cause for concern if you stopped being mine.

I hope to god that that doesn't happen.
Our love is strong, not to be concerned about,
but the distance does it harm, no doubt.

Don't forget me, I know its hard.
Wish a state line in between us didn't feel so far.

Never have felt like i couldn't trust you,
but my jealous paranoias always feel so real

I've only ever hated any time spent away
cause I know it doesn't hurt for you in quite the same way.

I will always love you baby
as long as you love me the same.

But who am I
to proclaim or suggest that you are of holy design.
To say you were conceived just for me would suffocate more than claim you as mine.

Things have changed and the empire state grows wider by the day.
Despite the fact that I'm trying hard to hold on I fear you're slipping away.

I am begging you please don't leave me.
I don't know why though, I'm miserable.
I'm just delaying the inevitable.

Don't forget me, I know its hard.
Wish a state line in between us didn't feel so far.

Never have felt like i couldn't trust you,
but my jealous paranoias always feel so real

I've only ever hated any time spent away
cause I know it doesn't hurt for you in quite the same way.

I could have always loved you baby
if only you had loved me the same.
